Etna (Sicily, Italy): Etna seems not to be heading towards another of its "Saturday evening shows" today. The New SE crater has remained quiet and tremor is low at more or less unchanged levels.

Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): A phase of strong explosive activity occurred last evening (this morning Kamchatka time), generating a dense ash plume that rose to approx. 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude and drifted 400 km to the east. This is the strongest activity since 20 November this year, when a powerful paroxysmal phase with lava fountains, lava flows and strong ash emissions ended. During today, the volcano seems to have calmed down again.
The following video shows the activity as time-lapse from KVERT's webcam:

As the following time-lapse video of the past 24 hours shows, there is occasional weak lava extrusion from effusive vents on the upper flanks, and rarely glow from the summit vent suggesting that the magma column is relatively still high inside the vent and sometimes produces deep-seated strombolian explosions. ...
